ABOUT THE CLASSES
WHAT TO WEAR
Most people wear a comfortable 't'shirt and leggings or a pair of shorts.
Please wear trainers for Aero-tone-ilates, if you have them, as this prevents injuries during the exercise. I can give you advice at the class on what to buy. For the pilates and toning class its bare feet or yoga socks.
I can drop off equipement for the classes at your house and you can borrow or rent them unitl the classes in the halls resume.
Do pour yourself a glass of water and stop for a drink when you need it
The Aero-tone-ilates class
The AEROBICS part of the class lasts for 20 minutes and I show options throughout to make the moves simpler and low-impact (for those of you who are beginners and those with bad knees or backs). Do stop for a drink during the aerobics if you want a pause!
The TONING part of the class is the fun part when we get out all the toys ...Bands, Balls and Weights. If you are a beginner, you use the pink bands and the smallest weights. ENJOY!! This lasts 15 minutes.
The Pilates part of the class lasts 15 minutes and includes all the best (most effective) Pilates exercises I have come across over the years.
The class ends with stretching and relaxation zzzzzzzzzz.
You will feel a changed person.....aerobically fit, toned and ready to take on the world with a smile on your face...(endorphin buzz)!
The Pilates class
This class is a combination of toning exercises and pilates using bands and handweights (optional).
It includes functional Pilates and Balance work with hedgehogs on a Wednesday .The exercises are done to relaxing music and most of the exercises are on the mats. The results are amazing!
The Step Class
This class is 20 minutes of low impact aerobic exercise on the step, working at your own fitness level (you can alter the height of your step for your personal level)
There is then toning exercises using hand weights and bands and then some floor work concentrating on core strength, tummy blitz, and Pilates exercises and stretches.
